How to factory Reset OVHD decoder


A factory reset is a common solution to most problems experienced on satellite receivers. This can sometimes be done using your remote control or a software upgrade. To factory reset using the remote control,

1. Press menu from the remote control
2. From the screen scroll to setting then press ok
3. Under setting go to installation and press ok. Parental pin code will be required, enter 1234.
4. Scroll down to factory reset and press ok
5. Press ok again to start channel search

When the channel search is finished give the STB at least 3 minutes to recover the lost channels.

You can see if the channels have been recovered by changing the program or simply press ok on your remote to display the list.

Hi. My ovhd won't let me go to the settings page. It just takes me onto the bottom broadcasting list. I can't change anything on it

Try this

Go to settings, then Settlite management.

Under Is20 settlite, input the following frequences, and save FREQUENCES:

12522 V 27500-3/4

12562 H 27500-3/4

12574 V 9700-1/2

12602 V 26657-2/3

12634 V 16170-3/4

12657 V 4883-3/4

12682 H 27500-3/4

12722 V 26657-1/2



E.G 12602 V 26657,

V – Vetical

H – Horizontal

Frequency – 12602

Polarasation – Vertical

Symbol Rate – 26657

Goto to settings once done, and navigate down to search network, check all network. Once you have finished scanning your decoder, go to settings again, open Favorites, create a new favorite and then open it, you will see the channel list.
